Our DREAM students, We can't close the door on their futures just because they're undocumented, by Father Stephen V. Sundborg
Recommendations for Policy Concerning Undocumented Students, by Seattle University Law School. This document was a culmination
of 10 months of work by an informal
committee comprised of SU faculty, staff, alumni, community partners, and
major donors who shared a collective desire for SU to emerge as a model for how
to best serve undocumented students in line with Seattle University's Jesuit

potential to offer Seattle University and many of our colleagues at other
institutions significant language needed in order to strive to ensure that all
of students, including the most marginalized, have access to higher
education. The name of the committee members have been deleted
